Par has blonde ambition

Studio picks up Faris laffer

Paramount Pictures has picked up an untitled fish-out-of-water project from “Legally Blonde” scribes Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith.

Anna Faris is onboard to topline; Happy Madison is producing.

The project is based on an original idea by Faris that she brought to the writers. She’ll star as a newly unemployed centerfold with no other skills to parlay into a new career. She then takes the only job she can find — house mother at UCLA’s lamest sorority.

Faris will take an executive producer credit along with Lutz and Smith. Happy Madison’s Heather Parry brought the project in to her company.

Faris was last seen in “My Super Ex-Girlfriend,” “Scary Movie 4” and “Brokeback Mountain.” She has two movies in the can: “Smiley Face” and “Mama’s Boy.”

Lutz and Smith’s other writing credits include “She’s the Man,” “Ella Enchanted” and “10 Things I Hate About You.”
